Chiropractic Model Premise Four

“VSC always consists of kinesiological (biomechanical/structural) and neurological components that cannot be physiologically separated (nor can their global effects on the bodymind)”

The way the body moves and the function of the nervous system are always part of subluxations and they can not be considered separate things under normal function of the body or separate things on how they effect you.

Validating the Chiropractic Model- Premise Three

Premise Three “Vertebral subluxation complex is the result of common physical, emotional, and/or chemical stressors and/or traumas (i.e. our modern industrialized lifestyle commonly presents stressors that lead to VSC epidemic.”

Simplified- The incorrect position and/or motion of joints of the body are a result of stresses put on the us everyday from the things that we do, the thoughts in our heads, the things that go into our bodies and/or traumas that happen to us.

Validating the Chiropractic Model- Premise Two

Premise Two “Segmental restrictions of movement and static and/or dynamic facet joint misalignments do commonly occur in the human spine and have been accurately and scientifically defined in the peer-reviewed literature as vertebral subluxation complex (VSC). (The 14 foundational premises for the scientific and philosophical validation of the chiropractic wellness paradigm, James L. Chestnut B.Ed, M.Sc., D.C., C.C.W.P, The Wellness Practice)

Simplified- Bones of the back do commonly move out of normal alignment changing the position of the joints between the bones, and the motion between those bones can also become decreased. This has been described through research as a subluxation. (Dr. Travis Heckes D.C., Comfort Chiropractic and Wellness, www.comfortchiropractoroverlandpark.com )

Validating the Chiropractic Model

Premise One- “Chiropractic represents a distinct natural, holistic, vitalistic, conservative, and rational health care paradigm that is both philosophically logical and scientifically valid”
(The 14 foundational premises for the scientific and philosophical validation of the chiropractic wellness paradigm, James L. Chestnut B.Ed, M.Sc., D.C., C.C.W.P, The Wellness Practice)
Simplified- Chiropractic is a separate type of health care that is different and focuses on the whole body and it being more than just parts and accepting there is something more to living things than just physical pieces. Chiropractic uses non-invasive treatment that doesn’t use drugs or surgery and the reasons why can be shown though scientific research.
